A pub is making waves with its twist on afternoon tea, which is packed with local seafood.
The Lovett family took on The King's Head in Belton last May and turned its pool room into Valerie's Tea Room - named after their mother and grandmother who passed away.
It has proved popular with its tasty sandwiches, scones and cakes.
Also available seven days a week is 'afternoon sea' for two people and it includes a glass of prosecco each and lots of local seafood, including a whole lobster, prawns and mussels.
Jodie Lovett said: "It has been going really well and people have been travelling from as far as Thetford and Diss."
Jodie's father Rob Lovett previously owned a chippy at Great Yarmouth Market, but since the pandemic he has run it as a mobile business.
It is now stationed outside The King's Head and over the winter months it is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.
